Mountain walk on Mt.Kengamine(h=3026m) ( Norikura mountain )

Dsc_2525Dsc_2506I climbed to the Norikura mountain this Monday with a friend of mine.
We arrived at a parking lot of the Norikura-Kanko-Center on mid-night. The reason why we arrived at the destination place in the night is based on the sequential holidays. From Saturday to Monday were the sequential holidays in Japan.
All the express way surrounding Tokyo had the traffic jam in these holidays specially in daytime. The length of traffic jam of each express way is over 30km long. So, I thought a plan to go to the destination place during night. If I do it along the plan, I can see the sunrise on the destination place.

The parking fee of Norikura-Kanko-Center (乗鞍観光センター: Norikura tourism center) was free. The around the summit of Mt.Norikura is a my-car restricted area because of environment concern. So we have to go to the entrance place Tenjindaira of Mt.Norikura by a shuttle bus.
The departure time of a shuttle bus to Tenjindaira (天神平) was 4:10am. This shuttle bus is the special tour for summer season to see the sunrize from the mountain. So we thought to take a nap till 3:30am, but the temperature in a car was too cold to sleep. According to sources from a staff of the bus company right before the departure time, before the sunrise, the temperature of the summit of the mountain was about zero degrees Centigrade. It stands to reason.
Dscn7475Dscn7473Dscn7475_2I bought a round trip bus ticket to Tenjindaira. There were very many hikers waiting for the bus, so the three motorcoach of about 40 person ridable operated. I dropped off at a bus stop one stop before Tenjindaira terminal, and walked toward the summit of Mt.Fujimidake.

Dscn7486Dsc_2324Dsc_2351The sun was just about to make an appearance at the East mountain. I wanted to see it at the summit of the mountain but I thought it was very difficult, so I had set the camera on the middle of the mountain. The sun appeared on a small clearance gap between mountain ridge line and cloud. But soon the sun was hidden in the cloud, but it was a very beautiful sunrise. The temperature was getting warmer and surrounding area around us was getting brighter, we walked up to the summit of Fujimi mountain(富士見岳)

Dsc_2418Dsc_2380Dsc_2381The autumn color of the mountain skirt was not still. When I arrived at the entrance of Mt.Kengamine, I saw a string of colorful dot by hikers on the mountain path to the summit. The degree of the mountain path was very tough, but 6 year old girl was climbing with her mother. Her effort had set fire to our willing heart.

Dsc_2471Dsc_2486Dsc_2525_2We climbed to the summit of the mountain Mt.Kengamine (剣ヶ峰 h=3026m) at 7:10am.
The landscape from the mountain gave me a strong impression.
The weather was cloudy, but it was in the higher level, it is called that it means not a blue sky but cloudy.

At the top of the mountain it has a caldera lake, I saw it and 360degrees fine view, these were splendid views, but it was cloudy.

I could see a snowy gorge on the mountain side above caldera lake. We walked down to the mountain and went to the bus terminal of Tenjindaira.

Dsc_2676Dsc_2682The departure time of the shuttle bus to Norikura-Kanko-Center(乗鞍観光センター) is on a regular schedule about one hour. We got it in a suitable timing and went back to the parking lot. I could see the beautiful view through the shuttle bus windows.

Dscn7515Dscn7503After arriving to the parking lot, I refreshed the weary body by soaking in a hotspring bath house beside the parking lot. The color of the hotspring was white turbidity and I felt smooth than clear hot water. I came back refreshed and had an early lunch meal in the facility restaurant.


At the bath house(湯けむり館: Yukemurikan), I bought a set-ticket of 1500yen that combined with meal ticket worth of 1200yen and bathe. I thought it was a great price of the set ticket. But when I combine the meals that I want to eat, the price got over 1200yen. I could bathe the hotspring only 300yen, and I could use 1200yen for the meal.
